Sew Cal Gal's Christmas Quilt Show


Here is my entry for Sew Cal Gal's Christmas Quilt Show.







I pieced the blocks this summer as part of the Star Sampler Quilt Along by Bradie Sparrow of QuiltCetera. I had gotten some of the fabric as a fat quarter bundle of corals and aquas from the Have a Very Sheri Berry Holiday last year for my birthday. I was unsure what to do with it, until I find out that line also had some really cute Christmas/Winter fabric with it. This is going to be my Christmas gift to myself. Right now, it is at the quilter's. I am tempted to put it away until Christmas when it comes back, but I don't know if I can wait that long.  There are many incredible quilts in the show, so go have a look and there is still time to enter one of your own.
